Four years ago, the hottest ticket in town was Jalex on stage. He was the most popular musician among girls like Gee is currently.
The afro-manding singer is now fighting hard to remain in the spotlight. Interesting! Itâ€™s certainly a cautionary tale of how fast a star can fall in our tiny country. Where are the Born Africans? Mass Lowe? Sambou Susso? Maslaa Bi? â€¦ and the list goes on!
Singing with mbalax star, Titi and hiring top Senegalese dancers clearly hasnâ€™t helped Jalex. Some of his latest singles are hardly played on radio.
â€œJalex is dead! He spoilt his music by attempting to crack into the Senegalese market,â€ said Lamin D, an upcoming promoter in Brikama.
Considering the limited number of performances he made since the emergence of 2013, the Bakau-born singer is embarrassingly trailing behind newcomers like his own little brother Manding Morry.
Adding salt to injury, Jalex is reportedly is in a stormy marriage. â€œIsnâ€™t he single now? quizzed a fan.
According to our source the wife is currently in the country to try and repair the damaged marriage.
